PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 6, 2018
“The WAC Is A Soldier, Too” (TV 277) is a 1950s episode from The Big Picture, a series produced by the Army Pictorial Center. This episode takes viewers on a tour of the recently opened Women’s Army Corps (WAC) training center at Fort McClellan in Anniston, Alabama and shows the preparation the women receive. The episode opens with a shot of Sgt. Stuart Queen (00:59), who discusses the new WAC training center. An aerial view of the new center (01:29) reveals the nearly two dozen buildings that make up the campus. Service men and women attend the dedication ceremony (02:00), where General Matthew B. Ridgway speaks on the importance of the Women’s Army Corps (02:22). He unveils a plaque as part of the dedication (03:42. New WAC recruits arrive at the Anniston train station. The women, also known as WACs, are issued uniforms (04:47), which they then try on; they are fitted for shoes (05:34) and their uniforms are tailored. WACs receive required vaccines (06:11). The women are then interviewed for specialty areas and courses of study. A woman wakes up in her private room in the barracks (06:52). WACs stand at attention (07:30) for roll call, which is followed by a morning march as the WAC band plays (08:03). WACs participate in drill training (09:00) and attend a class on individual standards and social concepts (09:54). Women train on typewriters in a clerk typist and stenographer course (10:37). When not in class, the women relax in one of the center’s lounges (11:44). WACs study as they participate in the center’s Officer Candidate School (12:06). A woman presents on Staff Organization (12:56). Another woman works in the kitchen as a KP (13:07); WACs go through the food line at the center’s cafeteria. WACs wash laundry and hang clothes to dry. Trainees attend a callisthenic class (14:27). The WAC center features recreational opportunities for the WACs: some women golf (14:57) on the 18-hole golf course, others play cards in game room (15:25), and some look at clothes at the Post Exchange (16:04). The new center features a beauty shop (16:18). The 14th Army Band, the only WAC band (17:13), plays the WAC march by Jane Douglas. WACs stand at attention as the band plays during the call of retreat (19:40). The WAC Service Club hosts a dance (21:58) with music provided by the WAC military band; service men and women dance together. At the barracks kitchen (25:17), WACs chat together before bedtime. A WAC member plays “Taps” (25:48). The episode ends with an overview of the WAC center and features a montage of shots of women in uniform performing various duties, including teaching in classrooms, assisting dentists and doctors, and performing secretarial duties.

The Women's Army Corps (WAC) was the women's branch of the United States Army. It was created as an auxiliary unit, the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps(WAAC) on 15 May 1942 by Public Law 554, and converted to an active duty status in the Army of the United States as the WAC on 1 July 1943. Its first director was Oveta Culp Hobby, a prominent woman in Texas society. The WAC was disbanded in 1978, and all units were integrated with male units.

"MILITARY CAMPAIGNS IN NORTH AFRICA DURING WORLD WAR II.... CONTINUES THE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF NORTH AFRICA FOLLOWING THE BITTER BATTLE OF EL ALAMEIN."

"The Big Picture" episode TV-485

part 1: https://www.youtube.com5/watch?v=vpOQ...

Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

During the Second World War, the North African Campaign took place in North Africa from 10 June 1940 to 13 May 1943. It included campaigns fought in the Libyan and Egyptian deserts (Western Desert Campaign, also known as the Desert War) and in Morocco and Algeria (Operation Torch) and Tunisia (Tunisia Campaign).

The campaign was fought between the Allies and Axis powers, many of whom had colonial interests in Africa dating from the late 19th century. The Allied war effort was dominated by the British Commonwealth and exiles from German-occupied Europe. The United States entered the war in 1941 and began direct military assistance in North Africa on 11 May 1942.

Fighting in North Africa started with the Italian declaration of war on 10 June 1940. On 14 June, the British Army's 11th Hussars (assisted by elements of the 1st Royal Tank Regiment, 1st RTR) crossed the border from Egypt into Libya and captured the Italian Fort Capuzzo. This was followed by an Italian counteroffensive into Egypt and the capture of Sidi Barrani in September 1940 and then in December 1940 by a Commonwealth counteroffensive, Operation Compass. During Operation Compass, the Italian 10th Army was destroyed and the German Afrika Korps—commanded by Erwin Rommel—was dispatched to North Africa—during Operation Sonnenblume—to reinforce Italian forces in order to prevent a complete Axis defeat.

A see-saw series of battles for control of Libya and parts of Egypt followed, reaching a climax in the Second Battle of El Alamein when British Commonwealth forces under the command of Lieutenant-General Bernard Montgomery delivered a decisive defeat to the Axis forces and pushed them back to Tunisia. After the late 1942 Allied Operation Torch landings in North-West Africa, and subsequent battles against Vichy France forces (who then changed sides), the Allies finally encircled Axis forces in northern Tunisia and forced their surrender.

Operation Torch in November 1942 was a compromise operation that met the British objective of securing victory in North Africa while allowing American armed forces the opportunity to engage in the fight against Nazi Germany on a limited scale. In addition, as Josef Stalin had long been demanding a second front be opened to engage the Wehrmacht and relieve pressure on the Soviet armies, it provided some degree of relief for the Eastern front by diverting Axis forces to the African theatre, tying them up and destroying them there.

Information gleaned via British Ultra code-breaking intelligence proved critical to Allied success in North Africa. Victory for the Allies in this campaign immediately led to the Italian Campaign, which culminated in the downfall of the fascist government in Italy and the elimination of a German ally...

BOUGAINVILLE CAMPAIGN "BATTLE FOR HILL 700" 145th INFANTRY / 35th DIVISION COMBAT FILM 22535
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 8, 2018
This silent film shows the battle for "Hill 700" starting on March 9, 1944. Depicted is the counter-attack by the 145th Infantry of the 37th Division to recapture the hill which had been taken in the early morning. The Japanese objective was to break through to the strategic beachhead on Empress Augusta Bay. Mortars (9:30) and light tanks and halftracks from the 754th Tank Battalion provided fire support and the battle continued through March 13th, when the troops regained the summit of Hill 700. Some of the difficult to watch footage in this film includes bodies seen at 15:40 in jungle trenches, evacuation of wounded at 16:00, body bags 17:30, and the burying Japanese dead. At 5;28-5:58, a Japanese soldier who was believed to be "playing dead" is shot.

The Bougainville Campaign was a series of land and naval battles of the Pacific campaign of World War II between Allied forces and the Empire of Japan. It was part of Operation Cartwheel, the Allied grand strategy in the South Pacific. The campaign took place in the Northern Solomons in two phases. The first phase, in which American troops invaded and held the perimeter around the beachhead at Torokina, lasted from November 1943 through November 1944. The second phase, in which primarily Australian troops went on the offensive, mopping up pockets of starving, isolated but still-determined Japanese, lasted from November 1944 until August 1945, when the last Japanese on the island surrendered. Operations during the final phase of the campaign saw the Australian forces advance north towards the Bonis Peninsula and south towards the main Japanese stronghold around Buin, although the war ended before these two enclaves were completely destroyed.

This is why Artillery is so important - The Battle Of Long Tan
Matsimus


Published on Dec 9, 2018
Late afternoon August 18, 1966 South Vietnam — for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer — and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage.

THE ENEMY JAPAN PART 2 "THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN" FANATICAL ENEMY PROPAGANDA FILM 63594a
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 11, 2018
Presented by the United States Navy during WWII, THE ENEMY JAPAN presented the American public with a look at their new adversary. In this, Part Two of the three part series entitled “The People,” is narrated by former U.S. Ambassador to Japan Joseph C. Grew. The film portrays the Japanese as a people trained from childhood to completely commit themselves to the Japanese Empire and its causes. The film begins with Grew giving an introduction (00:41), then shows footage of Japan’s Emperor Hirohito (01:51) as he rides a horse in a military parade. The Japanese military marches down a city street lined with cheering people (02:27). The film shows Tokyo (02:53), including Tokyo Station, a Mitsubishi office building, another train station, and a subway station—all part of the modern look of the country. Bankers sell cash to customers (04:15) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s floor bustles with transactions (04:43). At a theatre, Japanese men and women watch a play celebrating the Nazis (05:45), further promoting the idea of total war. Grew tells viewers that the Japanese government censors the media to perpetuate the national narrative, and there is footage of Japanese newspapers printing papers (06:47) and members of the military delivering news via radio broadcasts. The strength of Japan’s military comes from the peasant population; the film shows a peasant woman working on a farm (07:34) and other peasants working in a kitchen, building huts, and harvesting grain and rice. Men chop wood (09:06), as lumbar is a critical resource for the war effort. In an old traditional town (09:45), each home doubles as a miniature factory, where families produce a variety of goods. A family has tea in their kitchen (10:25). Grew accuses the Japanese of being ungrateful of the help the U.S. provided after the 1923 earthquake; the film provides footage of what appears to be destruction from that earthquake (10:38). Women work in a city factory producing textiles (11:16), and men build engines on an assembly line (11:55). Japanese participate in a Shinto event (12:38) and visit a Shinto shrine. Young boys dress in military uniforms (13:47) and participate in drills. The film then shows footage of the aftermath of a Japanese bombing of China (14:30), with Chinese people trying to escape the destruction. Japanese students study and paint Japanese characters (15:07). Japanese soldiers drill (15:52) and train with rifles. Young men attend the School of Military Government and Colonial Administration (16:55), where they learn how to govern an occupied people. Japanese soldiers stand for inspection (18:30), then they train with guns and in hand-to-hand combat. The film concludes with footage of Japanese soldiers marching in a military parade (19:25).

THE BIG PICTURE 6th INFANTRY DIVISION in WWII & OCCUPATION OF SOUTH KOREA 1944-1947 63684
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 10, 2018
“The 6th Infantry Division” (TV 214) is an episode of The Big Picture television series that showcases the famous division, also known as the “Sight Seein’ Sixth,” as it fights in New Guinea, the Philippines. The episode also features a bit of propaganda—an “interview” of a U.S. soldier posing as a Chinese communist private. The episode begins with Sgt. James Mansfield’s introduction to the segment (00:50) and Col. William W. Quinn’s promise of a rare interview with the Chinese soldier. The episode then cuts to 1947 Korea where a Korean man prepares food and coffee in a kitchen as men from the famed 6th Infantry Division take a break from the Korean conflict (02:16). One of the men tells the story of the division. The story of the Sight Seein’ Sixth begins in Oahu, where a woman performs a hula dance (04:17); the division prepares to depart for New Guinea. In 1944 New Guinea, the men of the 6th train and march along a beach (04:50); this is followed by footage of the country’s forests. The soldiers make camp in the bush (05:45) before moving to Maffin Bay where they receive supplies (06:12). The troops move through the jungle (06:35), and soon take fire. A firefight with Japanese forces erupts at Lone Tree Hill, considered the bloodiest ten days in New Guinea. The episode shows a dead Japanese soldier (07:16) and men of the 6th evacuating their wounded brothers. The division pushes farther up the hill using guns and flame throwers to clear Japanese positions, and they eventually take Lone Tree Hill. The soldiers wade through the surf to board ships (08:20); they make land in Sansapor (09:03), march along the beach, and capture a number of Japanese soldiers. Engineers use heavy equipment to clear jungle and build on airstrip on Sansapor (09:55). A squadron of B-25 Mitchell bombers fly in formation (10:31), then strike targets in Borneo and the Philippines. LSTs are loaded in preparation for the invasion of the Philippines, and the men of the 6th wait with supplies for the invasion to begin (11:27). Aboard a ship heading for the Philippines, the men of the 6th have a moment to relax (12:15). The calm ends as the American ships fire on Japanese kamikazes (12:46) then fire heavy artillery and rockets at targets on the coastline of the Luzon. The Battle of Luzon (13:50) begins, as soldiers make their way to shore despite Japanese artillery fire. The men of the 6th Infantry move into the hills, assisted by U.S. artillery. The episode then shows Munoz being “softened” by U.S. airstrikes (15:25). Japanese tanks and infantry attack (15:43), and the U.S. fights back with artillery and tanks. The fighting continues into the night (16:19), but by the next day, the Japanese troops flee their positions. U.S. troops climb up and down the island’s hills (17:35), engaging in intense firefights and taking heavy casualties: footage shows a number of wounded soldiers. The 6th Infantry then takes Bonsai Hill (18:30), capturing a number of Japanese soldiers (18:55). The Air Force bombs the terrain (19:13), allowing the troops and tanks to move along “Highway 4.” The episode shows the slow movement as the Americans make their way through jungle. The soldiers attack more Japanese strongholds (20:27), finally forcing the Japanese to surrender (20:42). There is good footage of Japanese POWs (20:56). The episode then cuts back to the kitchen scene in Korea to conclude the story of the Sight Seein’ Sixth. The episode finishes with Quinn’s propaganda interview of the fake Chinese communist private (21:51), who is actually a sergeant of the U.S. Army from Honolulu.

"This THE BIG PICTURE film contains the following stories... a combat-in-cities course in West Berlin..."

From "Your Army Reports" Number 14; "The Big Picture" episode TV-734

Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

Urban warfare is combat conducted in urban areas such as towns and cities. Urban combat is very different from combat in the open at both the operational and tactical level. Complicating factors in urban warfare include the presence of civilians and the complexity of the urban terrain. Urban combat operations may be conducted in order to capitalize on the strategic or tactical advantages with which possession or control of a particular urban area gives or to deny these advantages to the enemy.

Fighting in urban areas negates the advantages that one side may have over the other in armour, heavy artillery, or air support. Ambushes laid down by small groups of soldiers with handheld anti-tank weapons can effectively destroy entire columns of modern armour (as in the First Battle of Grozny), while artillery and air support can be severely reduced if the 'superior' party wants to limit civilian casualties as much as possible, but the defending party does not (or even uses civilians as human shields).

Some civilians may be difficult to distinguish from combatants such as armed militias and gangs, and particularly individuals who are simply trying to protect their homes from attackers. Tactics are complicated by a three-dimensional environment, limited fields of view and fire because of buildings, enhanced concealment and cover for defenders, below-ground infrastructure, and the ease of placement of booby traps and snipers...

When Russian forces attacked Grozny in 1999, large amounts of artillery fire were used. The Russian Army handled the issue of civilian casualties by warning the inhabitants that they were going to launch an all-out assault on Grozny and requested that all civilians leave the city before the start of the artillery bombardment.

Fighting in an urban environment can offer some advantages to a weaker defending force or to guerrilla fighters through ambush-induced attrition losses. The attacking army must account for three dimensions more often, and consequently expend greater amounts of manpower in order to secure a myriad of structures, and mountains of rubble.

Ferroconcrete structures will be ruined by heavy bombardment, but it is very difficult to demolish such a building totally when it is well defended. Soviet forces had to fight room by room; while defending the Red October Steel Factory during the Battle of Stalingrad, and in 1945, during the race to capture the Reichstag; despite heavy bombardment with artillery at point blank range (including 203 mm howitzers).

It is also difficult to destroy underground or heavily fortified structures such as bunkers and utility tunnels; during the Battle of Budapest in 1944 fighting broke out in the sewers, as both Axis and Soviet troops used them for troop movements...

The term close-quarter battle refers to fighting methods within buildings, streets, narrow alleys and other places where visibility and manoeuvrability are limited.

Both close-quarters-battle (CQB) and urban operations (UO) are related to urban warfare, but while UO refers mainly to the macromanagement factor (i.e. sending troops, using of heavy armoured fighting vehicles, battle management), CQB refers to the micromanagement factor—namely: how a small squad of infantry troops should fight in urban environments and/or inside buildings in order to achieve its goals with minimal casualties...

Armed forces seek to train their units for those circumstances in which they are to fight: built up, urban areas are no exception. Several countries have created simulated urban training zones. The British Army has established an "Afghan village" within its Stanford Battle Area and the French Army has built several urban training areas in its CENZUB facility...

Pershing vs. T-34: Korea 1950
Mark Felton Productions


Published on Dec 14, 2018
The Battle around the Pusan Perimeter during 1950 saw a showdown between the relatively untried American Pershing tank and the battle-hardened North Korean T-34/85. Neither had encountered each other before, but the outcome would establish who had the best armour during the rest of the Korean conflict, with important consequences. Find out the winner...

The United States Marine Corps (USMC), also referred to as the United States Marines, is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for conducting expeditionary and amphibious operations with the United States Navy as well as the Army and Air Force. The U.S. Marine Corps is one of the four armed service branches in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States.

The Marine Corps has been a component of the U.S. Department of the Navy since 30 June 1834, working closely with naval forces. The USMC operates installations on land and aboard sea-going amphibious warfare ships around the world. Additionally, several of the Marines' tactical aviation squadrons, primarily Marine Fighter Attack squadrons, are also embedded in Navy carrier air wings and operate from the aircraft carriers.

The history of the Marine Corps began when two battalions of Continental Marines were formed on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as a service branch of infantry troops capable of fighting both at sea and on shore. In the Pacific theater of World War II the Corps took the lead in a massive campaign of amphibious warfare, advancing from island to island. As of 2017, the USMC has around 186,000 active duty members and some 38,500 reserve Marines. It is the smallest U.S. military service within the DoD...
